"An Austin Rhythm and Blues Christmas"
Monthly listed the record as an offical "pick of
the month." The Houston Post praised the album
as, "one worth decking the halls over - the single
best Christmas album of the year." And the San
Antonio Light reported that, "Austin has a great
blues heritage and herein are some of the town's top
performers getting down on Christmas Eve."
Buddy Magazine enthusiastically said, "Paul Ray
has gotten several of Austin's heaviest musicians and
performers together to record An Austin Rhythm and Blues
Christmas LP. You ought to go out and grab one right
away because it's destined to become a Christmas classic,
like Bing Crosby's and Elvis' Yuletide recordings."
